Today was not filled with visitors, so Betty W., Ron M. Marly and I did our fair share of sitting around. It was a little cooler than yesterday -- although still unseasonably warm -- and there was a cloud cover most of the day. Nothing whatsoever was happening in town, so we couldn't practice our usual busybody voyeurism. We did have 9 visitors, and they came from Shell Knob MO, Sheldon MO, Long Prairie MN, and Miami, Grove, and Fairland, OK. The man from Shell Knob was a long haul trucker who stayed for quite some time and regaled us with stories of his collections of cars, antique motorcycles, and an old bi-plane which he regularly flies. The gentleman from Long Prairie, MN remarked that up there in the frozen north they had a milder winter than we had here in Oklahoma. He had driven down to check on his cabin on Grand Lake, and he'll be back in a few weeks to stay longer. One of the ladies from Miami, OK offered to be a volunteer here at the Station. Naturally, I took her name, address, and phone number!
So, it turned out to be a nice, quiet day. And now, if this post seems short and rushed, it's because it is. I'm off for a sushi dinner with my ex and his wife. Love that sushi!
